What to Consider About Memory Care in Highland

The city of Highland is located in Madison County, Illinois, and has a population of nearly 10,000, 19.6 percent of whom are aged 65 and older. Across the state, around 220,000 individuals in this age range are currently living with Alzheimer's disease.

To care for this growing segment of the population, the state has come up with an Alzheimer's Disease State Plan to ensure specialized care is available for seniors with some type of dementia. This care is offered at Alzheimer's special care units, which may be available throughout the state at assisted living, shared living and supportive living facilities. Two options are available in Highland, with another 14 to choose from in neighboring communities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Highland

  • Highland is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Crime rates in Highland are generally low. Out of a possible 100, with 100 being high crime, it scores an 11 for violent crime and a 27.6 for property crime, compared to the U.S. averages of 31.1 and 38.1 in the same categories. Despite these low numbers, it's still a good idea to ask about the specific safety policies and procedures of a facility.
  • While many Illinois cities experiences harsh weather during the winter months, Highland has a milder climate. The low is 22 degrees and the area only receives 11 inches of snowfall each year. However, summers are known to be hot and humid, with temperatures climbing to the high 80s. It may be beneficial to ask what measures a memory care facility has in place to keep its residents protected from extreme weather conditions.
  • Cost of living is often an important factor for families considering memory care, so for those seeking a budget-friendly locale in Illinois, Highland may be a good option. The overall cost of living is rated 96.3, compared to the national average of 100 and state average of 102.
